Gaming Intelligence Hot 50
Chairwoman and CEO
Stephane has been in charge of French National Lottery operator La Française des Jeux (FDJ) for the past ten years, and is leading the company’s efforts to become an international B2C operator in lottery, sports betting and iGaming. After establishing FDJ Gaming Solutions following its purchase of B2B supplier Sporting Solutions in 2019, FDJ has ramped things up by snapping up French online horse race betting operator ZEturf and the Irish National Lottery operator in the past year. Now, FDJ has made an audacious €2.6 billion offer to acquire Kindred Group.
Since taking FDJ public in 2019, Stéphane has been committed to the company’s digital transformation, and its acquisition of Kindred would be another feather under her cap. As an official partner for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, this is already a big year for FDJ. Things are about to get even bigger, and Stéphane deserves all the credit for that.
